From "Truthout". I don't think this is a good idea.

Agent Orange-like Chemical to Be Used at US-Mexico Border
http://www.truthout.org/032509N
Dane Schiller, The Houston Chronicle: "The US Border Patrol plans to
poison the plant life along a 1.1-mile stretch of the Rio Grande
riverbank as soon as Wednesday to get rid of the hiding places used by
smugglers, robbers and illegal immigrants. If successful, the $2.1
million pilot project could later be duplicated along as many as 130
miles of river in the patrol's Laredo Sector, as well as other parts
of the US-Mexico border. Although Border Patrol and US Environmental
Protection Agency officials say the chemical is safe for animals,
detractors say the experiment is reminiscent of the Vietnam War-era
Agent Orange chemical program and raises questions about long-term
effects
